Day School Soccer Star Aaron Franco Signs With U. of Maryland

A Jewish day school soccer player from Florida has accepted a scholarship to play Division I soccer.

Aaron Franco of the Samuel Scheck Hillel Community School in Miami signed this week to play at the University of Maryland. Franco, the team’s co-captain, led the Lions to the Florida state finals last year.

Franco will be the school’s first athlete to play Division I, the top level in college sports.

Scheck Hillel is one of the largest Jewish day schools in the country, with an enrollment of over 1,000 students.
